This article will discuss the options you have to achieve modern, rich budgeting in the cloud with Acumatica.

The leading cloud ERPs, like Acumatica and recently acquired Intacct, were ahead of the curve with their platforms – and we’re seeing the rest of the enterprise technologies race to join them in the new normal of cloud solutions. As you hit your stride in Q3, some of us in a new fiscal year, while others are starting the budgeting process for 2018, planning might be a central focus for you and your team. However, Acumatica cloud customers have not had many choices of true cloud budgeting tools in the past, where Adaptive Insights and Host Analytics have been mostly alone in the mid-market. The challenge has been limited integrations to Acumatica at a high cost. Now, new cloud solutions like BI360 Cloud are coming to the marketplace, both with better Acumatica integrations than the older cloud tools, more flexible budget form designers and a price level more suitable for the mid-market. This article will explore what to look for in a modern cloud budgeting solution for Acumatica users.

The benefits apply to data warehouses (DWs) as well. If you are starting to feel like you are wasting time and energy that can be used toward something else rather than analyzing and managing data with Microsoft Excel, DWs can help by removing tedious manual work and any errors. In this article, we will focus on Cloud DWs so you can make the most out of your Acumatica experience.

Have you done this? – According to Nasdaq, the consensus Earnings per Share (EPS) forecast for Bank of America for the years 2017, 2018, and 2019 is $1.73, $2.03, and $2.19 respectively.   How did they come up with these numbers?  If I told you that an analyst for Nasdaq went to the corner fortune teller and asked them to divine the numbers, you would laugh at me.  Or if I told you that they called three different gas stations for their price of gas for their research, you would say that the information was irrelevant.
